The key is to adapt your film exposure and film development so the majority of your negs print up the way you like them to look on what you select as your "target" paper grade. If that is no filtration or filtration for a certain grade of paper from MC paper, so be it: choose it and stick with it.

For many years, I have chosen a Nr. Two target paper grade. If need be, I can then "tweak" the print by dialing in different contrast using the dichroic filters. Filter packs are color-head and paper-manufacturer specific.

A dichroic color head can greatly simplify the print controls you have at your disposal for making a print which expresses your concept and your vision.
